Antipope (1168-1178). He was Abbot of Struma, and in opposition to Pope Alexander III was elected at Viterbo to succeed antipope Guido of Crema.

Threatened by the people of the town he fled to Albano, where he was attacked by the troops of Archbishop Christian de Buch. From Albano he fled to Tusculum where he prostrated himself before Pope Alexander, who forgave him, 1178, and later appointed him governor of Benevento.
